Help solve the concussion crisis! The Boston University CTE research center is looking for highly motivated BU undergraduates to assist in a groundbreaking study of the long term consequences of repetitive brain trauma in current and former athletes. Students will be trained to conduct telephone based cognitive assessments and collect athletic and medical histories of athletes from the youth through professional level via structured telephone interviews. Responsibilities include speaking with former athletes, collecting and entering data, assisting in quality control for study databases, and assisting in the enrollment of new participants. Students will also have the opportunity to attend and participate in lab meetings where relevant articles and findings from current research studies are discussed.

Interested students should send a resume and cover letter explaining their interest to the study coordinator, Clifford Robbins (carobbin@bu.edu). Competitive applicants will be able to commit 20 hours a week for one calendar year.
